I was using Acer for 4 years and never had any issue. That laptop is still running fine, at some point of time I was even using it as a internet web server even, running 24x7, so I can trust Acer. I am now using HP notebook though.

go for any good sony vaio , i also have acer , has compatibility issues like of pcmcia card of gprs / edge.

near me sony vaio the best

Acer is the best price wise. Some of the HP laptops are also below 50K.

Far as quality goes, all laptops use the same internals pretty much, so they all work the same.

See the HP laptop listed for 47K here: http://galaxy.pk/

im using HP 530, C2D lappy, less than 50k. recomment it.


#6

Well I went to saddar bazar in karachi. There was so many laptops available for 7 to 20 K range.. :(

well all brands have their plus and minus points.

ive used toshiba, acer, hp, dell and this is my conclusion.

toshiba are evenly priced (satellite series) come up with 1 of the best LCDs (much better LCD than hp, dell, acer of same price range/series) but have very bad battery life out of the box. iam using satellite now.

hp (compaq pasario series is the affordable one, nt as reliable as toshiba or dell, i wouldnt recommend).

dell (one of the cheapest and most reliable, an all rounder, highly recommended).

sony vaio (usually over priced, but they lk very stylish and just as reliable as dell).

IMPORTANT:

DNT BUY AMD, go for intel even if u have to settle for celeron.

if ur getting VISTA, make sure ur atleast have 2GB ram, otherwise the performance will suffer.

if xp then 1GB more than enough specially since ur using for browsing, chatting etc.

hard drive, ram, optical drive, battery can always be changed in laptops at a latter time, all u have to do is open a screw at the back, but graphix card, processor ur stuck with, so remember that when ur reading the specs.

best of luck with buying ur new laptop :)


#13

oh forgot to mention acer, which are also very affordable and work fine, but they have a plastic feel ( iam talking about the low end onces) as compared to toshiba, dell etc.


#14

Thanks a lot brother for your detailed reply but i have a question. You have mentioned that hp laptops are not better than dell. You have mentioned vostro series. What about business series?


#15

the review ive given is in general,

and applies when u start comparing diff. series by diff. manufacturers as long as ur comparing equivalent series.

for e.g. u can only compare toshiba satellite to hp compaq presario series, coz both r low end.

we cant compare dell XPS to satellite or presario series coz that would be unfair :)

Dear help me a little, I can’t find Lenovo on Galaxy website. Where is it? A link will help a lot. Is it really 40,000?

ACER and SONY both are wonderful. I personally own two Acer laptops and they are kick ass when it comes to performance. SONY is a bit expensive while ACER is pretty much affordable if you can afford to buy laptops :)
